I am afraid that this is going to be a short review, primarily because I have already given up my copy of this book, and now I cannot go back and quote the passages that I had marked.
The short of it is that Violet Yates has talent. There are several poems in here that are quite, quite good. There are some others that are trite or where the rhyme is too forced. Most of the problems I see, however, are common and easily solved with more reworking of the poems or with a stricter eye toward selecting which works to publish.
I enjoyed the read and would look forward to other collections by Ms. Yates.
